I drive 120 Miles to pick up my boots after a sharpening--then more!

Last week I was on business travel and left my skates with my sharpener. He sends me a picture on Friday that they're ready.
And there they are

Fifteen minutes later when I check Saturday's schedule, I discover that my rink is having a 4 day hockey thing. Competition? Intermurals? Some kind of hockey bowl thing?

And I have to have my skates on skate.... in a completely different rink... in a completely differen town.

Sunday, I drive 60 miles south to get my skates.

Then I drive 60 miles north to get home
-- skates in the trunk 

I drive  50miles NORTH! to go to LTS
Then home again is another 50 miles

For this many miles that LTS lesson better be worth it!!


  1. Traveling almost as much as my spins do...

  2. I feel you. My studio is 34 miles away. I go 4-5 days/week. I spend a lot of time going back and forth. Depending on traffic,I sometimes spend longer in the car than the session.

  3. I know I'm late to this party, but I understand. I travel by subway, 70 minutes to skate a 50 minute session and then 65 minutes back home to work. I sometimes wonder if it's worth it...
